Mite questions
    #1329614 - 02/23/03 08:22 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

A friend of mine went on vacation the other day. When he
came back there were lots of mites infesting his compost trays.
Small white ones. Are these harmfull to humans? What should he
do to kill these bastards? What can be done to prevent future attacks?
Thanx

Check "An Interesting Indication of Insect Infiltration" for pics of a mite infestation I had.

I would suggest cleaning your whole area with a bleach solution. Keep your eyes open for signs of larvae. I would look for those trails as you see in my first post. The lifecycle of these mites is about 7 days from larvae to larvae. You need to irradicate them ASAP.

Will a bleach solution alone kill them or would poison be needed?

Another thing to keep in mind is that the rate at which mites reproduce is related to temperature. The wamer it is, the faster the breed.

A bleach solution worked for me.
